obama should do it," for different reasons. it is not tied to the election. the election is not going to solve the problem for them. >> let me also say i agree, 100%. do not get me wrong. i do not think that us going in and invading is going to change perceptions. either way, there is going to be these perceptions. helping syria is by no means going to change the perception that we helped some countries because of resources versus others -- that we help some countries because of resources versus others. >> i see no such trend in the country. i just do not see any public support for it. i think shibley has got it right. intervention would make things worse for syria and for us. you ask what is going to look like in a year, and i push it out five years. i think we are looking at a civil war. every player in the region. right now, what you have got is what started as a peaceful uprising has now been transformed into an insurgency and, you know, basically every player, the saudis, the turks, others, they are funding and fueling their own gangs, and they are fighting. there is no easy answ
to the left, too. one of the problems was that he spent all of this election, the only thing barack obama campaigned on, really, for a second term agenda was his vow to raise taxes on the wealthy. so, now we come back, the day after the election, the white house has already come out and said we're not negotiating on that principle at all. and boehner said we're not negotiating on that principle at all so we're going to find out in the next two weeks whether or not there's any room here or if ins a repeat of the debt limit talks in 2011. >> speaking of that, i don't think that boehner wants a repeat of that. there was a sense last year that he got out a little ahead of the caucus and obama was able to exploit that, negotiating within the negotiating. this time i think he's making sure they present a united front and he said he's open to some increase revenue and i hope he holds on the rates, i don't think we need marginal rates increase ins this economy. he wants to negotiate and cut a deal and i think that obama will be inclined to play ball. >> paul: this is the thing. if you look at sec
on the journal editorial report, a complete post election wrap-up. a look how president obama won a second term and what he's likely to do with it. and plus, how should republicans respond and regroup for 2014 and beyond. from tax hikes to collective bargaining to gay marriage, how some big measures, across the states across the country. welcome to the journal, editorial report. i'm paul gigot, a divided country gave president obama a second chance on tuesday, handing him a narrower, but decisive win over republican rival mitt romney. here is with a look how he did it. dan henninger, and jason riley and washington columnist kim strassel. start with you, when you get a defeat like this, there's no one thing necessarily that explains it. but why don't you pick out your most important? >> look, i think there were two things key to the obama victory, one was that very ol on, they ran this very high dollar attack campaign against mitt romney, a bit of a character assassination throughout the summer and mitt romney didn't respond to it and he didn't recover from it. when you combine that with the pre
president obama was elected. she's not alone. ceo's across the country are feeling the pinch. we'll talk to donald trump about that. >> steve: two weeks after sandy and still many are in the dark. as you can see, they are not happy. so what's the power company's answer for the thousands of frustrated customers? go under our web site, which is kind of complicated when you don't have electricity.

a difference. we have to come to an agreement and accept the fact that president obama won the election which included the tax increases for the wealthiest americans. >> tell me what you think is fair if we do compromise and taxes are raised he ran on staying howls holds have been make that go money and above will see taxes go up. is that fair? >> no. that is a level that has to move. they are bringing other revenue sources to the table including capping deductions and closing loopholes. that number the president is digging its heels on are where the margin matters and it will effect the job market. the white house will have to give on that point. >> we don't want to see taxes go up for everyone. that tax rate we may see a compromise. with deductions and closing loopholes. >> what do you think we can expect? >> both are agreeing on the same point. we are going to expect something small. we need to make a real difference on our deficit. we have to have serious tax increases. we have clearance spending cuts as well. we have to be fair. we have to rely on the middle class to take it to the front
the challenge from newt gingrich and barack obama will win narrowly re-election with 290 electoral votes. >> specific. >> he will win the state of ohio on the strength of saving the auto industry. >> belva: well, paul. >> wow! impressive. >> i was a little too conservative. >> belva: well, you were wrong on the electoral vote, at least. >> i didn't get florida for him. in that column. >> belva: so, what are your thoughts now? what made you so sure that this was going to be our future? >> a couple of things. no incumbent president -- there's a lot of noise we hear day-to-day in political coverage, this person made this gaffe or that person had this many people at their rally, but the truth is, no incumbent president who has not had a challenge from his own party in the primary has lost re-election since 1932, herbert hoover. it is almost impossible to defeat an incumbent president when his party is unified. second, the auto bailout was enormous. i lived in ohio. i have family in cincinnati and toledo. 1 in 7 jobs in ohio is related to the auto industry. and there were 10,000 people workin
